Lobsters are ten-legged crustaceans closely related to shrimps and crabs. These creatures are found in all of the world’s oceans, as well as brackish environments and even freshwater.
They have poor eyesight but highly developed sense of taste and smell.
They feed primarily on fish and molluscs, but will eat algae and other marine plants and even other lobsters.
The largest lobster recorded was caught off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada, and weighed 20.14 kg; it was between 0.9 to 1.2 m long.
Scientists think it was at least 100 years old.
